For the curious...

I went out with my mom today and did my "big haul" of grocery food [I do this about once a month or so, stocking up on food I can't get in town]. I also, coincidentally, spent hours yesterday organizing my kitchen, which included the fridge. Now, it's fully stocked and I want to share its contents with you!

New charm for my bracelet!
I got a heart charm because I love myself and need to remember to take care of the body that I love. [Also seen is the 25-pound star that you haven't seen yet, although I added it two weeks ago.] You can't tell in this picture, but I also had to replace the closure because part of the old one fell off and got lost. This one's prettier anyway, it has swirls and dots all over it! I'm really enjoying this bracelet, and I definitely stay in control more on days that I'm wearing it. [Plus, it's a super cheap reward! Today's charm only cost $2.]

The last week and a half has been very challenging, fitness-wise. My ankle's been acting up again, I spent three days last weekend completely bedridden [and in too much pain to think about doing even upper body exercises]. I haven't been to the gym in almost two weeks. I didn't lose anything last week and it looks like tomorrow's weigh in will be just fractions of a loss, if that. I did make a couple mistakes regarding food, but mostly it's because I have done no exercise [aside from pushups]. I'm going to take my new kettlebell for a spin later today, but I doubt it'll make much of a difference by tomorrow morning. Thankfully, however, my ankle's been feeling back to ~normal~ [normal for it, at least] the last couple of days so I might get back in the gym on Monday, but hopefully definitely by Wednesday.
